Deep Orange. No! Blue! (aaahhhhhhhhh…*)


When I found the previous Deep Blue watch I wrote about, this model, the Master 2000 also caught my eye.  Most striking, at least on the model I’ve chosen to present here, is the color of the lume – I’m not certain that I’ve seen orange lume on a watch before.

As with most of the dive watches we bring to your attention here at WWR, it’s not all just looks.  If you were to pick up this watch (for around $800), you’d be getting a watch with the following:

  • 2000 meter water resistance, including an automatic helium release valve
  • Anti-magnetic to 70,000 am
  • Sapphire crystal with AR coating
  • Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic movement
  • 120 click uni-directional bezel on a 46mm stainless steel case
  • 22mm lugs holding a 1/2 link bracelet in place
All in all, we once again see a solidly-spec’d watch from Deep Blue.  And, once again, while it’s not breaking new ground in the diver segment, it is a sharp-looking watch, and the black/orange is a classic combination.  Of course, if that’s not your particular taste, they have some other varieties, all with blue lume:
  • Black bezel / black dial / orange hands
  • Blue / blue / orange
  • Black / black / blue  (this is my second favorite of the variants)
If I was forced to choose between the two Deep Blue models we’ve showcased on WWR, I would likely lean towards the Alpha Marine, but the Master 2000 isn’t a watch I would hesitate to strap on my wrist if it dropped into my hands.  It is a solid entry at this price point for a diver, and a seriously impressive WR rating that will help it stand up to daily life.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
